I did it! I finally made a quilt, all by myself, from start to finish, with a hand sewn binding to boot! And I absolutely LOVE it! I got the "pattern" from Crazy Mom Quilts, she is amazing and one of the first blogs I ever started reading, and when she posted this tutorial I knew that would be my first attempt and completion of a real design style quilt.
I also used her tutorial for how to make your own binding, and attach it. So basically she taught me how to make this one from start to finish.
These different polka dot fabrics jumped out at me at the store one day and I knew they were perfect for this quilt. They are my favorite colors! I love the green I used for the binding, and I also used it for one long green stripe on the back. I already had a whole bolt of the cream to use on my sad attempt at the star quilt.
The quilt is a crib size, and it took me one weekend to sew the top, and then another weekend (plus a few stolen moments here and there) to baste, tie and then bind it. It was a labor of love and I absolutely do LOVE it! Now I am going to start another one!
